(1972) N/A (N/A) (0) * * * * "See my profile for the key to this code" * * * * SYNOPSIS: "10 randomly selected episodes of PBS' "Masterpiece Theater" series that are adaptations of short stories by A.E. Coppard and H.E. Bates, set against the English countryside during the post-World War I period. Recognizable faces like Ian McKellan ("Gods and Monsters"), Peter Firth ("MI-5"), and Pauline Collins (Harriet Jones of "Doctor Who", "Shaun of the Dead") get to play in meticulously designed sets and real country locations." CONSENSUS: "While the episodes reveal the timeless and constant qualities of the British landscape and its people, once you realize that every tale is going to finish with an unhappy twist makes watching an exercise in masochism." MOTIVATION FOR ME TO SEE: I thought it would be interesting to see some of my favorite British actors (Ian McKellan, Peter Firth, Prunella Scales, and others who have since become familiar to me) performing 37 years ago.
